The 2009 edition of the Old Farmer’s Almanac was released last week. First published in 1792, the Old Farmer’s Almanac is the United States’ oldest continuously published periodical. For those that haven’t read one, the almanac has a rather wide array of information in it ranging from fashion trends to gardening and of course the weather. You can pick up a copy of the Old Farmer’s Alamanc at just about any bookstore and at Wal-Mart.
The weather predictions are probably the single most popular part of the book and the editors claim over 80% accuracy. No matter what, it is pretty interesting reading and we will be posting some more information about what the almanac sees in the future for Colorado in terms of weather. In the meantime, here is what the almanac has predicted for September 2008:
SEPTEMBER 2008: temperature 65° (3° above avg.); precipitation 1″ (avg.); Sep 1-6: Sunny, very warm; Sep 7-15: T-storms, seasonable; Sep 16-25: Sunny, warm; Sep 26-30: T-storms, turning cooler.
